The Lubbock Police Department is accepting registrations for
the LPD Explorer Post.
The Explorer Post is open to boys and girls, ages 14 to 21, who have an interest in law enforcement.

search warrants, traffic stops, handling domestic disturbances and other law
enforcement related topics. Our Explorers have traveled to other cities and
competed against other explorer posts in role-playing scenarios. Upon meeting
certain internal post requirements, Explorers will also have an opportunity to
ride along with an LPD officer on patrol. The Explorer Post goes on campouts,

Parents can bring their interested young adults to the Lubbock Police Department on September 18th at 7:00 PM for the sign up event. There will be a short presentation and activities to take part in. Interested young adults can sign up for the program at that time.
